Whats the difference between Conventional, Conventional Alternatives, and Non-conventional energy alternative?
I think that the whole difference is in the way of sale, production and efficiency of this or sometimes raw materials that are used to obtain energy. Now oil and gas are going up, I read an article about oil industry growth
Hey Fud, you have a bit of a mess there with definitions. Let me try to explain some of it. The term, “Conventional Energy,” is basically what you have written already. In most cases, it refers to fossil fuel based energies. You have to be careful with this, I’ll explain. Alternative Energy is any energy source that is used to replace a conventional energy source in order to offset the negative side effects of the conventional source. A simple example of this is switching from coal heat in an older home to natural gas. It is less polluting, more efficient, and costs less. Another example, however, was when coal became an alternative energy source for wood in industrial applications in the last century. So in a way, coal could fit into the category of alternative energy, depending on the context. Your next one, “Conventional Alternative,” is not something I’ve ever heard thrown around in our circles here. It sounds like the news men who refer to airline pilots as, “Fully Qualified.” Mos
